15th Birthday Cake - 2nd Full Fondant Attempt


My niece (the one I made the Skittles cake for last year) asked that I PLEASE make her cake this year. Her request? A two-tiered zebra striped cake with a purple peace sign on the 2nd tier. She later requested that I replace the peace sign with yellow flowers. I know she likes the color green so I used it to accent the cake as well.

I know the “15” looks a little like “25” but it was the only thing I could work with at the time since I rolled the fondant out a bit thickly and I was afraid to do any more with it. I brushed the number with Wilton’s “Leaf Green” pearldust to make it pretty. Needless to say, my niece LOVED the cake which made me very happy. Here’s to practicing more with fondant, it’s so much fun!

31st Birthday Cake for Hubby


My dear husband had one request and one request only for his birthday cake. Too Much Chocolate Cake and chocolate frosting! I complied and had nothing but rave reviews, the cake was absolutely wonderful! Alas, I can only dream until I get to make it again! Anyone have this request? Anyone...?

Bridal Shower Cake, 1st Full Fondant Attempt


It had been a while since I had a little pack of marshmallows just DYING to be made into fondant. I had made some earlier this year with marshmallow fluff with no success so I decided to get the miniature marshmallows and follow the recipe I had true to form. A co-worker's bridal shower was coming up so I decided to try my hand at it since I was itching to make the cake. Her colors were hot pink and orange. I didn't want to use hot pink food coloring and have people walking around with pink teeth! The best way to avoid this was to... Ta-da! Make the fondant! It was a lot of fun, though I had a little bit of trouble with it cracking a little. It still tasted great and everyone loved it.
